There’s one prized fish that sticks out when thinking about the Great Lakes – Salmon. This freshwater fish is as exciting as it is delicious, so it features high up on the agenda for anglers across the north of the US. Fortunately, Door County Salmon is up there with some of the best on offer. Its 300-mile coastline sees it border some of the most productive waters out there, giving you easy access to the Salmon fishing grounds. 
Since the 1970s, Coho and Chinook Salmon have been a key feature of the Lakes, and the “King” still reigns supreme in these waters. Go after monsters as big as 30 pounds from Green Bay to the depths of Lake Michigan, and you’re in for a thrilling day out.
The season runs from April through October, giving you the chance to indulge in the good weather as well as the incredible fishing. Get ready to work up a sweat, as you spend anywhere from four hours to a full day on the water, testing your skills against these-tough-fighting creatures. 
You’re never far away from a harbor or boat ramp when on the peninsula of Door County, so there’s no excuse not to come aboard. Whether you’re in Brussels in the south, at the rich waters of Sturgeon Bay, or in Fish Creek or Ellison Bay in the north, a Door County Salmon fishing charter is waiting to take you away!
